DateQuestionAnswer
2017-08-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which of the newly-heralded Cubs SP prospects gets to Wrigley first? Which, if any ,project as middle of the rotation or better?
(Matt from Chicago)
Adbert Alzolay is the answer to the second, in my opinion. To the first, I guess it's either Alzolay or Trevor Clifton. (Dillon Maples is the next prospect who'll grace a Wrigley Field mound, but obviously, that's purely as a reliever.) (Matthew Trueblood)
2013-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dillon Maples, Juan Paniagua, or a tire fire. Choose one.
(sitrick2 from Minneapolis, MN)
Bread and Water (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-09-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Much has been made among CHC fans about their Big 4 prospects(Baez, Almora, Bryant, Soler),which guys in the 5-10 range in their system intrigue you most?Btw, is Olt redeemable?
(Matt from Chicago)
Mike Olt is absolutely redeemable. I still believe in his ability to be a very good everyday player. As for the 5-10 range, I like the progress scouts reported seeing with Dillon Maples this year. The addition of CJ Edwards and having guys like Duane Underwood and Pierce Johnson make for some quality depth outside of the top four guys. (Mark Anderson)
2013-08-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can you tell me about Dillon Maples? He had a really rough start to the year and was demoted. Since the demotion he looks to have turned a corner. The walks are down and the k's are up. What kind of upside do you see with him? Does he have the stuff to keep up with other Cubs prospects such as Pierce Johnson? Also, thanks for the chat. These are always a lot of fun to follow.
(Bill from Chicago)
For Maples it isn't about the numbers, especially in Boise. It's what his mechanics are like. Is he in good form and is he repeating it. I see him being a late inning reliever, or a total bust. Johnson is more of a legitimate starting pitcher candidate, even though he doesn't have the raw stuff that Maples can flash. And I'm still a Ben Wells fan, hoping for him to put it together in AA and make the next step next year. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you surprised at Kyle Hendricks success this season at AA for Tennessee (Cubs) and should he be considered one of the Cubs top pitching prospects?
(Mike from Illinois)
The Cubs are obviously very bat-heavy in their system, and many of the top arms are either hurt (Vizcaino) or at the lower levels (Pierce Johnson in Low-A, Dillon Maples in Low-A, Duane Underwood in extended spring). So by default Hendricks is one of their better arms at the upper levels.

There's nothing too sexy about Hendricks, but he can really pitch, so I'm not surprised he's having success this year. I saw Hendricks a couple times last year in Myrtle Beach. Haven't gotten a report on him last year but here's what I saw – located and mixed deep arsenal very well. Not a lot of life on anything but sat 87-91-ish with his fastball but showed the ability to pop 92-93 and the occasional 94 when needed. Very deceptive changeup that also didn't have a lot of movement. He also had a cut-slider and big get-me-over curveball. The stuff is very fringe and it's probably a no. 5 starter at best, but he can locate and mix, so that gives him a shot. (Jason Cole)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the most interesting Cub prospect besides Baez, Almora, Soler and Vizcaino?
(Navin from Pasadena, CA)
Duane Underwood or Dillon Maples. (Jason Parks)
